I am writing this post for anyone who is thinking of purchasing from Saveology. It’s one of those “too good to be true” things online.
Ya all know my favorite store is Pottery Barn. A few people sent me a link to Saveology’s Deal of the Day – $12.50 for a $25.00 card. I knew it was too good to be true, but I went against my better judgement and purchased the “DEAL.” After purchasing the deal, you need to call in to a number where they take your code and try to sell you another deal. I’m good at saying no to phone deals so my agent understood that I only wanted what I called in for. Some customers get agents who think charge the customer anyway (see tweet below – edited profanity because that isn’t necessary)
My Pottery Barn gift card arrived yesterday. Since I know the store well and received many gift cards, I know that this is one of the older gift cards. I went to check the balance on the card and I get this:
I check again because maybe I typed the numbers wrong. Nope – I got scammed!
After calling and e-mailing the company, I finally send them a tweet about fraud. And this is what they respond back:
Really Saveology? You don’t know my e-mail address. You don’t see it on your records with this username? If Saveology even had a half way decent customer service or they knew how to use social media, their rep would have already e-mailed me.
I use Amex and I was able to contact them immediately about the scam. I know it’s just $12.50, but I don’t want to be scammed.
So if you are wondering if Saveology deals are real, they aren’t. Keep your money in your pocket and don’t be scammed like I was.
